Well, it only took forever, but it’s finally complete: the next installment to the hatchJAPAN originals video collection. From the time of initial conception to the final product took probably over a year to materialize. Never-the-less, here she blows:
All hatchJAPAN original 動画 can be found at the official hatchJAPAN youtube channel.
The gaps between phases of creation were long. From writing to shooting took several months, from shooting to editing took another couple months, and from adding the final editing touches to creating an ending theme-song I was pleased with took another couple. It even took an additional week or two to get the video uploaded to youtube because for some reason when I upload from my current top, the video comes out pixelated with major audio flaws. I’m not sure if this is a wireless connection issue or just straight-up my computer, but it took uploading from a different desktop to eliminate the audio/video abnormalities.
While the video is not a complexity, I was pleased with several things I was able to accomplish. The overall look and completeness are a step up, including a widescreen format, opening and closing credits, an original song made specifically for this project, a new hatchJAPAN promotional outro, and a layered audio score (be sure to have a listen with headphones or some high-end speakers that can produce low pitched noises to catch the full effect).
Really, the major thing my videos lack are a legit HD camera. I am currently shooting with a very outdated, standard Sony miniDV handycam. This is something I will need to change if I want to take my video productions to the next level.
Anyway, I hope you were somewhat entertained with this video, コントロール [Control]. Until next time!
